Breast Cancer Update

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition’s (DBCC) Annual Breast Cancer Update began as a small scientific meeting to update physicians about the latest trends in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Recognizing the importance of sharing the most up-to-date information the Breast Cancer Update has grown to an annual educational conference offered free to the public.

Each year the Breast Cancer Update features leading medical breast cancer panel experts and informational resources offering the latest developments in treatment and care to breast cancer survivors and their families, physicians, nurses, students, and allied health professionals.

It is our goal to have programming that empowers our community in the fight against breast cancer. The Annual Breast Cancer Update allows us to bring nationally renowned speakers in the breast cancer field and gives us the opportunity to educate the community about the innovative research, treatment, and programs that are available in Delaware.

The 23rd Annual Breast Cancer Update was held on Wednesday, February 10, 2021, virtually via Zoom.

Chaired by Marilyn Hyte.
Planning Committee: Katelyn, Bender Vicky Cooke, Vicky Connie Holdridge, Marilyn Hyte, Jan Jessup, Sally Maday, Sue Murray, Kelly Paustian, Linda Powell, Amanda Perdue, Meridith Rothstein, Francesca Vogel, Lois Wilkinson, Lois Dennis Witmer, and Wilma Yu.


As a result of this program, attendees will be able to:

  1. Identify recent trends and advances in breast cancer including the most recent TAILORx trial results.
  2. Describe the advances and treatment modality options available for triple negative breast cancer including the translational research and outreach initiatives.
  3. Describe the role of Oncotype testing in both breast and prostate cancers.
  4. Describe the various alternative/holistic/complementary therapies available for breast cancer patients including acupuncture.
  5. Understand integrative medicine i.e. the addition of non-medicinal therapies, and approaches to patient care.

We would like to thank all of our speakers, moderators, sponsors, and attendees!
